Here are a few entertainment ideas clients visiting your office in New York.
- Speak Easies
With a fun theme and classy environment, a speakeasy bar can be a great place to share laughs and have great conversations. A few great speakeasies include, Attaboy, with its specialty hand-crafted cocktails, and Backroom — a speakeasy that actually existed in New York during the prohibition.
Museums can be great places to learn about history and new exciting things about the city. They can be a great, slower-paced stop for relaxation and enjoyment. New York has several noteworthy museums. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is the largest museum in the US. The National 9/11 Memorial and Museum holds many artifacts and documents the stories and monumental impact of 9/11.
Restaurants are typically always the go-to spot for treating clients, but New York offers a few specialty restaurants that can add excitement and fun to a traditional business outing. If your client has a sweet tooth, take them to Max Brenner, a chocolate restaurant. Or, if savory is more of your flavor, try out Raclette, and have your pasta spun in a melted, hollowed out cheese wheel.

Check out the The Heights on the 31st floor of the Arlo NoMad Hotel to find yourself standing on an impressive glass floor.
